NordicTrack C 9.5 Elliptical TrainerOther Considerations:

Front Drive Design

For people with lower back problems the NordicTrack C 9.5 Elliptical Trainer may prove to be uncomfortable as its design requires forward leaning movement. The overall design is good and should be suitable for the vast majority of people but the front drive aspect means it may not be ideal for everyone especially those with lower back issues.

No Wireless Heart Rate Monitor

With its impressive list of high-tech features, it is disappointing that the NordicTrack C 9.5 Elliptical Trainer doesn’t come with a wireless heart rate monitor. There are the dual grip sensors on the handlebars so you can still monitor your heart rate that way. However, this is not as convenient as a chest strap wireless monitor that many elliptical trainers have included as one of their features.

Final Word on the NordicTrack C 9.5 Elliptical Trainer

There are plenty of reasons why the NordicTrack C 9.5 Elliptical Trainer is solid buy. Firstly, it is manufactured by NordicTrack, one of the highest rated sports equipment brands in the world. If quality is high on your list of ‘must-haves’ then NordicTrack definitely tick that box. The options for working out are almost limitless with the pre-programmed workouts, the adjustments you can make to the level of difficulty or the infinite number of routines you can access at ‘iFit Live’. If all that wasn’t enough the awesome color display with web access makes the NordicTrack C 9.5 Elliptical Trainer an excellent piece of exercise and entertainment equipment. Rating: 95/100.
